Police Officers' Association of Nebraska
A contributing member of the Law Enforcement Community since 1953.
Per the website, https://nationalcops.org
C.O.P.S. was organized in 1984 with 110 individual members. Today, C.O.P.S. membership is over 37,000 survivors. Survivors include spouses, children, parents, siblings, significant others, and affected co-workers of officers killed in the line of duty, according to Federal government criteria.
C.O.P.S. is governed by a National Board of law enforcement survivors. All programs and services are administered by the National Office in Camdenton, Missouri. C.O.P.S. has over 50 chapters nationwide that work with survivors at the grass roots level."
C.O.P.S. Nebraska Chapter
The State of Nebraska has had 110 line of duty deaths, with the most recent being Officer Kerrie Orozco of the Omaha Police Department in May of 2015.
It was through the tremendous amount of support, compassion, and direction from the Iowa C.O.P.S. Chapter that a desire to assist and become more actively involved in the C.O.P.S. mission developed.
In our efforts to establish C.O.P.S. Chapter, this can only be done through the efforts, involvement, and active participation of Survivors and supporters spanning across the entire State of Nebraska.
